Question about Computers & Internet
Sadly, if your computer is not recognizing the USB flash/pen drive at all when you plug it in then it's one of a couple of possible problems which can be separated into 2 distinct groups.
1) problems with your computer
--you said you tried multiple computers, and it would not recognize on any of them. i'm assuming they are systems which this or a similar drive has worked on before. therefore, it's 90% certain that there is NOT a computer configuration problem.
2) problems with the drive
--if the drive is being recognized by the computer, and you just can't retrieve the data on the drive then there's a couple of possible solutions. Tech Republic offers free membership and several "free to try" programs that could help recover the data on your drive. Click here for a link to Tech Republic
--If the drive is not being recognized by your system, then it is most likely physically damaged and there is not a high probability of recovery. If the connector is bent at all you could try straightening it out, but other than that there's not much you can do to recover your drive.
